Radeon Software Crimson Edition: Black Screen while installing [Crossfire]

Question asked by rennerdo30 on Feb 7, 2017


I have this problem for some time now... Everytime when install/update the graphics driver I'm faced with an blackscreen. Of course i know a short blackscreen ist normal for some seconds, but my blackscreen lasts for about 10 minutes. The blackscreen disappears with some lagg and after that the pc runs fine again with no problem. The driver installs successfull too. But waiting everytime 10 minutes or more for the installer to finish / blackscreen to disappear is quite annoying. Nearly the same things happens, when I enable CrossFire. I get an blackscreen, which lasts for about 10 minutes. However disabling CF works almost instant.


I also have some clock rate issues in some games, but ClockBlocker fixes this for me...


So my question is:

Can i get rid of this blackscreen? When yes, how? Does this appear to be an common issue or is something in my system broken?
